Depth layering demonstration

The depth layering will be obtained in the behalf of the motion parallax phenomenon. The only condition is that the 3-D camera motion is translational. The algorithm used here is composed of three modules: 2-D motion estimation, test of the 3-D translation hypothesis, and motion field segmentation.
The original sequence is the MPEG-2 Flower Garden test sequence. A car is inserted between two extracted depth layers in the manipulated video.
